Niantic, Inc. spun out of Google in October 2015 in partnership with Nintendo and The Pokémon
Company with a mission to delight our customers with innovative entertainment experiences which
blend works of the imagination with the real world to enable our users to have fun while visiting new
places, learning about the world around them, and meeting new friends. Our rst product, Ingress
(https://www.ingress.com), has been downloaded more than 14M times and has attracted a fan-base of
highly active users in more than 200 countries around the world. Our systems utilize high throughput
real-team geospatial querying and indexing techniques to process more than 200M game actions per day
as people interact with real and virtual objects in the physical world. With the upcoming launch of
Pokémon GO (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sj2iQyBTQs) we will extend that system even
further. Interesting opportunities exist in developing the hosted platform for these and future products
and in developing innovative client-side 3D and AR technologies.
Niantic offers competitive salaries, stock options, medical and dental coverage for you and your family,
generous vacation and holiday pay. We have game nights, outdoor adventures, and most importantly
super fun and smart people! And yes – we offer healthy free lunches too!
